Still waiting

Posted on

We were supposed to have Tanda Malaika hauled out yesterday morning, but the parts hadn’t arrived, and this morning the winds were too strong. So, the plan is that tomorrow morning at 8:30am a towboat will come and help guide us in because the winds will continue to blow like crazy.

In the mean time we have kept busy by relaxing and doing school work, etc.  Aidan caught a fish this morning. and then let it go again.

Mommy has been trying to teach me how to crochet. I know how to knit, but crocheting is another story!

This morning Mommy woke up seasick due to the constant waves in the night. I gave her Bonine, and she sat at the stern salon table until it kicked in and made her really sleepy. After a good nap she was all better and good to go again.

Jude continues to impress us with her climbing skills. I think she’s ready for coconut trees now! She climbed up as high as the radar, which is pretty far up there.

This afternoon Danny and a few others worked on the ropes holding the trampoline in place. They did a great job.

I grilled some pork chops and zucchini out on the braai for dinner,  and we enjoyed a sunset meal on the stern.

Afterward we lay on the tramp and watched the sky darken and stars appear. Mycah spotted a green glow in the water, and when we looked out, we saw many many of them. Some would start out as a fluorescent green spot and then slowly dissipate while others would stay florescent green and spin around in large groups. I couldn’t capture a photo of it, but it was magical. Mycah read up that they were fireworms, and the females excrete a fluorescent green mucus to attract males. The swarms we saw were the males. The ocean never ceases to amaze me.We are surrounded by incredible beauty.
